September 23, 2005
It means well and has mild charms, but writer/director Katrina Holden Bronson can't steer the performers in the same direction, nor can she whittle down the overplotted story to its essence.

Daltry Calhoun proves to be as slight as a blade of grass-and, unfortunately, about as intoxicating as the legal kind.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
February 5, 2006
For all its good intentions, Daltry Calhoun is a predictable, derivative film.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

It'd be nice if Tarantino would go back to making his own films (which are usually pretty doggoned good) rather than helping out young filmmakers to produce garbage.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
September 22, 2005
If director and screenwriter Katrina Holden Bronson intended some moments as irony, the film lacks the necessary finesse for such an elusive quality.

October 5, 2005
A string of scenes in search of a movie.
November 4, 2005
Knoxville tries hard and exudes a certain likability, but can't really handle big dramatic moments at this point in his career.

Southern whimsy, when handled delicately, can produce a precious jewel a la Junebug. In less skillful hands, it can be merely precious.

At times this movie is as slow as watching grass grow... it's a film with some nice moments that's a tad on the hokey side, but always tries to be super-duper earnest.

September 23, 2005
Utterly lifeless and dull and quite simply hard to sit through.
Full Review | Original Score: 0/10
November 3, 2005
Although the film starts off somewhat amusingly, the first-time feature director Katrina Holden Bronson seems to have spent more energy assembling the overbearing soundtrack than expanding on her characters' fractured relationships.

It seems everyone involved meant well, but this one moves like an empty boat in a pond.
November 1, 2005
Anyone looking for a paean to the unnatural allure of a sprinklered lawn can see that the grass is greener in Blue Velvet.
September 23, 2005
Mind-numbingly awful.

Newcomer Sophie Traub is a natural charmer who hovers above the confusion like an angel even as her co-stars are sucked into the muck.

Inconsequential with a made-for-TV look.

September 22, 2005
This is the kind of smug, listless product that the world, indie or otherwise, would be better off without.
September 26, 2005
It's a fantasy of a Southern town without minorities or economic difficulties where all the white folks support each other and speak with clear, but variable drawls. Oye.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
September 22, 2005
Bronson attempts to wring some unearned emotional redemption from her dimwitted characters, but the faux-Southern sincerity and June's incessant voice-over prove too annoying.

September 23, 2005
Aims for whimsy and poignancy and mostly comes up empty.
